Sluggish Start, Strong Finish

Posted by Chris Lambert

A bit of a damp and cool start this morning with lots of low clouds, patchy drizzle and areas of fog, won't make it feel like a mid July's day right away, but we'll get back there on this 7day forecast as temps warm throughout the weekend, setting the stage for another heat wave next week.

The damp start this morning sees the few scattered rain showers and areas of drizzle dry up by lunchtime as a few breaks arrive in the overcast.  There will be another pop-up shower in spots this afternoon, but much of the day has dry hours in it.  Highs range from the mid 70s on the coast to near 80 inland.

Sunday's forecast is a bit better for the beach as highs head for the low to mid 80s near the coast, upper 80s inland.  It'll be brighter too, although a few spots pick up a passing thunderstorm.

Heat wave number 3 of the year starts Monday with highs in the lower to middle 90s.  Low to mid 90s stretch all the way through Friday as high humidity settles in too.  The storm threat is low Monday-Wednesday, with just isolated storms Thursday and Friday.  At times, winds will be weak, and that'll allow for sea breezes to kick in, adding just one more reason why the beach will be the place to be durning our latest stretch of heat.

Enjoy the weekend!

50/50 Weekend

Posted by Chris Lambert

We're off to an iffy start to the weekend as nuisance rain and wet snow moves across the area.  While it's not a well organized area of low pressure, it develops right near us midday, and that'll be enough for a tricky forecast.  Light to moderate  rain/snow is on and off early this morning with a heavier burst of precipitation possible late morning, through mid afternoon in eastern MA (11:00AM-3:00PM).

Final Days

Posted by Pete Bouchard

That's the way to get it done! Fine finish to the workweek as sun dominated and winds behaved.

I submit that is the one - and perhaps only - reason these days have felt springlike in this extended thaw. If the winds were gusty on a day like today, the sun (albeit a little stronger these days) is really no help.

Great Mid-Winter Weather

Posted by Jeremy Reiner

Nice mid-winter weather? Here's how I envision it:


*Mild temps (40 or higher)

*Little to no wind

That last bullet point (IMO) is probably the biggest when outside this time of year. After our morning fog lifts out of here all three of those criteria will be met this afternoon's Friday. #Winning.

Colder Temperatures Cometh

Posted by Pete Bouchard

As far as blah days go, this was the blahest.

Fog blanketed the area as winds remained light and variable. We're still looking at some fog, but the thickest part of it should only be during the first half of the night. After that, gentle winds should "mix out" some of the heavily fogged in areas.
